    Honestly was never happy with P2's mix, it's not bad, but it could have been so much better, especially given the source tones we dialed in.
    Nolly's mixes are already making it sound so much better, so much more space and impact, and some LOW END finally haha. Actually having him retrack the bass for the whole album which is going to make a world of difference right there.

    But if P2 needs a facelift, P1 needs a complete overhaul, P2 is something that can be improved with what we have, it would take a lot of time and effort to get P1 re-recorded, and that time and effort could be spent on new material. It's something we have entertained, but especially with covid, might not be a priority for a while.

    I saw someone on reddit say that the solo in Erised was played by John Petrucci -- is this true?

    Yes. Also, the solo in Have a Blast (or at least one of them) is played by Guthrie Govan and the one in Mile Zero by Wes Hauch.

    Within the first 5 seconds of the solo you can easily hear that it's Petrucci, we don't need Reddit comments to confirm this :lol:

    Bulb Volume 6 is out. I'm surprised to see I Lost My Lunch In My Pants actually made it on there. Man this song used to get stuck in my head for years and it looks like it will for the next couple weeks again. I wish Misha and Alex did more of these ridiculous songs.

    I'm curious how the hell @bulb beat those pickups up so badly or is that intentionally part of the design for this guitar?

    Isn't that just Bare Knuckle's battle worn finish?

    The song would stay in my head for weeks after stumbling across the demo every few months, it's just so fun.

    Though I distinctly remember people vehemently claiming that Alex was the one singing when to me it sounds 100% like Misha, so I'm curious if Misha could chime in on this.

    Good to see Epic Fail and Legatta on here, couldn't even attempt to guess how many times I've listened to Epic Fail. These two songs along with Breeze are something really special man...

    Misha sings it apart from the very last line, "or is it on ebay?".

    I think someone asked about that on ask.fm like 8 years ago. Holy shit that feels like an eternity. :lol:

    Well I picked up that light blue Bulb guitar. Pretty sweet! I have to mess with the pickup wiring I think, the bridge pickup is really quiet and the neck pickup is working fine.

    You just casually picked up a $2,9K guitar without even knowing why the pickup covers were scratched? :squint:

    Oh well, HNGD (happy new guitar day).

    Well to correct the timeline it was after the forum provided the info that those were actually stylized pickup covers that I had never seen before. :D

    The way I see it was, I've seen that guitar quite a few times in photos and always wished Jackson sold it to plebs like us. Knowing I could actually snag it I figured I would regret it if I didn't get it....much like I regret selling my USA washburn Dime 3 Stealth now :(.

    Dude HNGD! What a cool piece of gear to have. You definitely have to do a thread with pictures and tell us how you like it.

    The first thing you notice on this guitar or the retail bulb model is the P logo inlay really messes with you when you are looking at the neck. I think it's mostly because the 3 dot logo is on the 11th fret and can trick you into thinking its the 12th fret double dot.

    So far so good. I need to give it a deep cleaning to get into all the tiny spots on the bridge and what not. You can tell this guitar has seen some things.

    Man, you must have lucked out...my Grandma lives in Beltsville and every time I've been up there I stop by Atomic Music and it's like a graveyard of strats/teles. Congrats!
